Mongabay is an environmental and conservation news site with an international focus. Founded in 1999 by Rhett A. Butler, Mongabay publishes news about on wildlife and ecosystems around the globe, with a focus on how human society impacts the environment. In 2012, the registered nonprofit arm of Mongabay was formed "to raise awareness about social and environmental issues relating to forests and other ecosystems." Since then, Mongabay has launched environmental news services specific to Indonesia, India, and Latin America. Mongabay has twice received grants from the MacArthur Foundation, and in 2014 Butler was awarded The Field Museum's Parker/Gentry Award for his work with Mongabay. Visitors to Mongabay will find a well-organized interface with multiple news articles published daily. The site is searchable by keyword, and its main menu organizes stories into categories including Rainforests, Oceans, and Animals & Environment. Meanwhile, story feeds can also be viewed by topics (e.g., Birds, Forests, Palm Oil) or by geographic location. Teachers and parents may also be interested in Mongabay's For Kids section, where they will find educational content for students in the K-5 age range on a variety of ecological topics. Mongabay is available in nine languages.
